MEDIA REVIEWS
"Homer Lea was one of the most puzzling and bizarre Americans in the history of American-Chinese relations. He was a writer by profession but chose to be a political activist for the Chinese cause: reform and revolution.... Scholars have studied Lea and his involvement with the Chinese, but no one has pursued far enough his role in the 1911 revolution. Eugene Anschel has succeeded in clarifying the hazy picture of Lea and his role in that historic event. The strength of this book is that the author has gleaned relevant information from all possible sources--both published and unpublished, scholarly and popular--and weighed carefully each piece of evidence before incorporating it into his story.... Well researched and the product of meticulous analysis, it is one of the first comprehensive and systematic studies on the subject, thus making a valuable contribution to the growing body of literature in the fields of American-Chinese relations as well as Chinese reform and the Revolution of 1911."-Pacific Historical Review
